Indeed LSM Tree
Indeed LSM Tree is a fast key/value store that is efficient for high-volume random access reads and writes.
Indeed uses it for many applications including serving job data for 100s of millions of job searches each day.
Indeed LSM Tree is composed of three parts:
- lsmtree-core is an implementation of a log-structured merge-tree.
- recordlog is a library for writing data to append-only record logs optimized for replication.
- recordcache provides abstractions around writing record logs, building LSM trees, and performing LSM tree lookups.
A typical use case is requiring a key/value store replicated on multiple servers. Instead of replicating the store itself, we store writes in record logs which are slaved to each server. Each server then builds its own LSM tree from the record logs.
